Any PC dogfighting games (air) anymore? Or Air Strikes capabilities (Other than Saints Row 3?) ?

I seriously can't think of anything other than maybe Microsoft Flight Simulator X maybe ?

WWI: Rise of Flight

WWII: IL-2 Sturmovik: 1946 (which, with UP3, starts getting into Korean War-era jets)

Present day: Falcon 4.0 BMS

 

Note that these skew very, very much toward the "realistic" end of things by default, so you're not only expected to have a precise joystick (and, ideally, TrackIR or other means of head-tracking), but spend some time learning the handling characteristics, and in newer aircraft, the sophisticated subsystems. Crimson Skies or Ace Combat, these are NOT.

 

RoF and IL-2 let you ease off on the more realistic aspects if you want, though.

Yeah  I wouldn't want a disaster like Sonic Generations without a Xbox controller.   That thing is confusing , doesn't even tell you the key you bound it with.

You would really really like the game War Thunder, I can't recommend it enough. Take a look at it, its a multiplayer airplane game, but I think there is also singleplayer too.

Hey, I still have my old Falcon 4.0 disk. I should try this BMS version. I haven't touched a good sim in a while (as in, 10 years).
